I feel like everyone always thinks its much more black than it really is. Why is that?

Hispanics are easily the second largest group in the metro after whites. There are about 2 million hispanics.
Because, Chicago is segregated. The Southside is black for miles, and so is the westside.

Anyway... I got the feeling that some people have no idea how Hispanic Chicago(the metro too) has become. Not only are they the largest minority in the metro, but for the first time in history, CPS District 299 enrolled more Hispanic students than black students in 2011

This shows a severe lack of knowledge about America.

All you have to do to understand the change that is happening in America is to read CD Forum posts in the midwest and great plains states areas. Oklahoma, Kansas, Iowa, Minnesota and etc. are all showing a boom in Hispanic population. This is due to a need to fill jobs which many Americans don't want to do, especially in meat processing and packing.

The turkey farms of western Minnesota and cattle stockyards and meat packing areas of Oklahoma and Kansas and hog confinements and processing and packaging plants in Iowa mostly employ Hispanics, legal and illegal.

OP, if you would stop eating meat and eggs you could enjoy more years of White dominance in America!

me and my dog Fido are a little worried about white people becoming the minority. Some have accused me of raising a bigoted but isn't that a harsh accusation?


Also, is there anything logical about wanting a community to stay predominately white (such as, not wanting it to drop below 80% white). Its logical to prefer vanilla ice cream over chocolate if that's what you prefer, because your taste buds make you prefer it.
So , is it just as logical or necessary when it comes to race.
anywhere in the northeast or northwest.

boston, seattle, and portland (maine or oregon) would be good choices. as liberal as they are, they're very whitebred areas. i have the same line of thinking as you and we're right. race is more than a social construct, it is a cultural and genetic construct and it deserves to be segregated and preserved.

It must be incredibly frustrating to be a racist in 2011. People today frown upon those who advocate separate water fountains, the public burning of crosses and random lynchings - acts that were at one time effective in keeping the different races "segregated and preserved." The only venue left where one can safely express such bigotry is on internet forums, hiding safely behind anonymous nicknames. How sad for them.

Even in these cases, they are more the exception and not the rule in those states. Oklahoma might be the exception due to also having a relatively high Native American and good sized Black population, in which both groups are spread out among urban, suburban and rural areas in that state.

My point is that ethnic change started in the rural areas of the Midwest and Great Plains long ago and is continuing to change.

We could of course argue about what is the "majority" now - but it can no longer be said or assumed that ALL rural areas are predominantly "white". SOME rural areas of the Midwest and Great Plains are predominantly, if not completely, Hispanic.

That is exactly why I stated the rural areas of the Northwest, Northeast, and midwest. Because I know the southwest (southern California, Arizona, and New Mexico) and south (Texas to virginia) all have sizable non-white populations outside of the major cities.
